Staffordshire University

Staffordshire University is the Connected University. We connect a global network of more than 20,000 students on our degrees. Our city campus in Stoke-on-Trent is the University’s nerve centre, with world-class healthcare education around the corner at our specialist Centres of Excellence in Stafford and Shrewsbury.


Our industry connections and emphasis on experience make our graduates among the mostemployable in the UK. We provide high-quality education across a wide range of subject areas including computing, design, law, and business, engineering and healthcare.


We don’t just teach the future generations, we’re immensely proud of our research too. Everything from helping protect the feet of people with diabetes and helping the UK meet its renewable energy targets, to developing video monitoring applications to help keep society safe. A huge number of our academics are research-active – and no less than 78% of our research is classed as ‘world-leading’ or of ‘international importance’ (REF 2014).


Over the last few years, we have spent over £100m on new technologies to make sure you have the best chance of achieving your goals, including our state-of-the-art Esports Lab, industry-standard Broadcast Journalism Suite, and much more the Digital Kiln - a unique space where our students learn together in an active and collaborative way.
